Trump Goes After Rupert Murdoch, Attacking Him Over Allegedly Backing Nikki Haley, Labeling Him a “Globalist”


Donald Trump continues to post his own brand of deranged claims on Truth Social.

He never really acknowledged Rupert Murdoch stepping down at Fox News, or son Lachlan taking over. Fox News pushes the Republican and right wing agendas to unsuspecting viewers who largely back Trump. So you think the often indicted orange man would try to stay on their good side.

But today Trump finally got around to Murdoch, accusing him of being a “globalist” (not a bad thing at all). He claims Murdoch now wants Nikki Haley to be the GOP candidate. He also says Murdoch once called to congratulate him for “beating” Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election. Big deal, Donnie. Who cares?

With each post, Trump sounds more and more desperate.

Also Trump is nicknaming Haley “Birdbrain.” He has a childish nickname for each of his enemies. Back when it was “Lil Marco” and so on, it was a novelty. Now it sounds patheti

“Fox has totally given up on Ron DeSanctimonious, and is on their next “journey” pushing Nikki “Birdbrain” Haley, who stated loudly and often that “President TRUMP was a GREAT President, and I would NEVER run against him.” Well, so much for that! Fox & Friends just put on a hand picked Haley acolyte who absolutely gushed Birdbrain. It was really something to behold, so obvious and lame. Oh well, we took out Ron, a far less talented person than people originally believed, Crooked Joe is down to “us” by 11 Points, and now we have to focus on one of the most overrated people I know, Nikki. This reminds me of 2016 all over again, when Globalist Murdoch pushed Jeb, and all others, as they fell like flies. After beating Hillary, he then called me and said, “Hi, what a great win. So proud of you.” Such sincerity! But don’t worry? When Fox ratings drop still further, you can bet on the fact that they’ll be back – they really have no choice. MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!”
